A meditation upon the mighty po'ioer

the earth, so great is his mercy toward tKiem
that fear him. j

12 As far as the east is from the/west,
so far hath he "removed our transgressions
from us. I

13 "Like as a father pitieth his chjildren,
so the Lord pitieth them that fear hiifn.

14 For he knoweth our frame ; p he re-
membereth that we are idust. '

15 ^s for man, "^his days are as grass :
= as a flower of the field, so he flouiisheth.

16 For the wind passeth over it, and fit
is gone ; and 'the place thereof shall know
it no more.

17 But the mercy of the Lord is from
everlasting to everlasting upon them that
fear him, and his righteousness "unto chil-
dren's children;

18 ^To such as keep his covenant, and
to those that remember his commandments
to do them.

19 The Lord hath prepared his ythrono
in the heavens; and ^his kingdom ruleth
over all.

20 ''Bless the Lord, ye his angels, fthat
excel in strength, that ''do his command-
ments, hearkening unto the voice of his
word.

21 Bless ye the Lord, all ye <=his hosts ;
^ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure.

22 ''Bless the Lord, all his works in all
places of his dominion : ^ bless the Lord,

my soul.

PSALM CIV.

1 A meditation upon the mighty power, 7 and won-
derful providence of God. 31 God's glory is eternal.
33 The prophet voweth perpetually to praise God.

BLESS ^the Lord, O my soul. O Lord
my God, thou art very great ; "^ thou art
clothed with honour and majesty :

2 ''Who coverest thyself with light as
with a garment : ''who stretchest out the
heavens like a curtain :

3 *Who layeth the beams of his cham-
bers in the waters : ''who maketh the clouds
his chariot: s who walketh upon the wings
of the wind :

4 ''Who maketh his angels spirits; 'his
ministers a flaming fire :

5 ■\^Who laid the foundations of the earth,
that it should not be removed for ever.

6 'Thou coveredst it with the deep as
with a garment : the waters stood above the
mountains.

7 •" At thy rebuke they fled ; at the voice
of thy thunder they hasted away.

8 II "They go up by the mountains; they
go down by the valleys unto "the place
which thou hast founded for them.

9 P Thou hast set a bound that they may

not pass over; ithat they turn not again to
cover the earth.

10 t He sendeth the springs into the val-
leys, which t run among the hills.

11 They give drink to every beast of the
field : the wild asses t quench their thirst.

12 By them shall the fowls of the heaven
have their habitation, which f sing among
the branches.

13 ' He watereth the hills from his cham-
bers: "the earth is satisfied with 'the fruit of
thy works.

14 "He causeth the grass to grow for the
cattle, and herb for the service of man :
that he may bring forth ==food out of the
earth :

15 And ywine that maketh glad the
heart of man, and f oil to make his face to
shine, and bread which strengtheneth man's
heart.

16 The trees of the Lord are full of sap;
the cedars of Lebanon, ^ which he hath
planted ;

17 Where the birds make their nests : as
for the stork, the fir-trees are her house.

18 The high hills are a refuge for the wild
goats; and the rocks for °^the conies.

19 •'He appointeth the moon for seasons :
the sun "knoweth his going down.

20 ^Thou makest darkness, and it is
night: wherein fall the beasts of the forest
do creep forth.

21 «The young lions roar after their prey,
and seek their meat from God.

22 The sun ariseth, they gather them-
selves together, and lay them down in their
dens.

23 Man goeth forth unto ""his work and
to his labour until the evening.

24 sO Lord, how manifold are thy
works ! in wisdom hast thou made them all :
the earth is full of thy riches.

25 So is this great and wide sea, wherein
are things creeping innumerable, both small
and great beasts.

26 There go the ships : there is that
■'leviathan, whom thou hast f made to play
therein.

27 ' These wait all upon thee ; that thou
mayest give them their meat in due season.

28 That thou givest them, they gather :
thou openestthine hand, they are filled with
good.

29 Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled :
''thou takest away their breath, they die, and
return to their dust.

30 'Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they
are created : and thou renewest the face of
the earth.

for ever: the Lord "shall rejoice in his
works.

32 He looketh on the earth, and it
"trembleth: "he toucheth the hills, and
they smoke.

33 P I will sing to the Lord as long as
I live : I will sing praise to my God while I
have my being.

34 My meditation of him shall be sweet :
I will be glad in the Lord.

35 Let ^the sinners be consumed out of
the earth, and let the wicked be no more.
■^ Bless thou the Lord, O my soul. Praise
ye the Lord.

PSALM CV.

1 An exhortation to praise God, and to seek out his
works. 7 The story of God's providence over Abraham, .
16 over Joseph, 23 over Jacob in Egypt, 26 over Moset
delivering the Israelites, 37 over the Israelites brought
out of Egypt, fed in the wilderness, and planted in
Canaan.

0^ GIVE thanks unto the Lord ; call
upon his name : ''make known his deeds
among the people.

2 Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him :
" talk ye of all his wondrous works.

3 Glory ye in his holy name : let the
heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord.

4 Seek the Lord, and his strength : "^seek
his face evermore.

5 « Remember his marvellous works that
he hath done; his wonders, and the judg-
ments of his mouth ;

6 O ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye
children of Jacob his chosen.

7 He is the Lord our God: '"his judg-
ments are in all the earth.

8 He hath & remembered his covenant for
ever, the word which he commanded to a
thousand generations.

9 ''Which covenant he made with Abra-
ham, and his oath unto Isaac ;

10 And confirmed the same unto Jacob
for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting
covenant :

11 Saying, 'Unto thee will I give the
land of Canaan, f the lot of your inherit-
ance :

12 ''When they were lut a few men in
number; yea, very few, 'and strangers in
it.

13 When they went from one nation
to another, from one kingdom to another
people ;

wrong: yea, "he reproved kings for their
sakes ;

bread.

17 iHe sent a man before them, even.
Joseph, who -^was sold for a servant:

18 'Whose feet they hurt with fetters:
t he was laid in iron :

19 Until the time that his word came:
'the word of the Lord tried him.

20 "The king sent and loosed him: even
the ruler of the people, and let him go free.

21 ''He made him lord of his house, and
ruler of all his f substance :

22 To bind his princes at his pleasure ;
and teach his senators wisdom.

23 y Israel also came into Egypt; and
Jacob sojourned ^in the land of Ham.

24 And "^he increased his people greatly;
' and made them stronger than their enemies.

25 ''He turned their heart to hate his
people, to deal subtilly with his servants.

26 ''He sent Moses his servant; and
Aaron ^whom he had chosen.

27 «They shewed t his signs among them,
f and wonders in the land of Ham.

28 ^ He sent darkness, and made it dark ;
and ''they rebelled not against his word.

29 'He turned their waters into blood, and
slew their fish.

30 ''Their land brought forth frogs in
abundance, in the chambers of their kings.

31 'He spake, and there came divers sorts
of flies, and lice in all their coasts.

32 ""tHe gave them hail for rain, and
flaming fire in their land.

33 °He smote their vines also and their
fig-trees ; and brake the trees of their coasts.

34 "He spake, and the locusts came, and
caterpillars, and that without number,

35 And did eat up aU the herbs in their
land, and devoured the fruit of their ground.

36 pHe smote also all the first-born in
their land, ithe chief of all their strength.

37 ■'He brought them forth also with silver
and gold : and there was not one feeble person
among their tribes.

38 ^ Egypt was glad when they departed:
for the fear of them fell upon them.

39 'He spread a cloud for a covering;
and fire to give light in the night.

40 " The people asked, and he brought
quails, and ^satisfied them with the bread of
heaven.

41 yHe opened the rock, and the waters
gushed out ; they ran in the dry places like
a river.

42 For he remembered ^his holy promise,
and Abraham his servant.

43 And he brought forth his people with
joy, and his chosen with f gladness:

The story of the people^ s rebellion,

heathen: and they inherited the labour of
the people;

45 '' That they might observe his statutes,
and keep his laws, f Praise ye the Lord.

PSALM CVL

1 The psalmist exhortdh to praise God. 4 He prayeik
for. pardon of sin, as God did with the fathers.
7 The story of the people's rebellion, and God's
mercy. 47 He concludeth with prayer and praise.

PRAISE t ye the Lord. ^O •'give thanks
unto the Lord ; for he is good : for his
mercy endureth for ever.

2 ''Who can utter the mighty acts of the
Lord 1 who can shew forth afl his praise ?

3 Blessed are they that keep judgment,
and he that ''doeth righteousness at ^all
times.

4 ''Remember me, O Lord, with the
favour that thou hearest u7ito thy people : O
visit me with thy salvation ;

5 That I may see the good of thy chosen,
that I may rejoice in the gladness of thy
nation, that I may glory with thine inhe-
ritance.

6 8 We have sinned with our fathers, we
have committed iniquity, we have done
wickedly.

7 Our fathers understood not thy wonders
in Egypt ; they remembered not the multi-
tude of thy mercies ; ^ but provoked him, at
the sea, even at the Red sea.

8 Nevertheless he saved them 'for his
name's sake, ''that he might make his mighty
power to be known.

9 'He rebuked the Red sea also, and it
was dried up : so "" he led them through the
depths, as through the wilderness.

10 And he " saved them from the hand oi
him that hated them, and redeemed them
from the hand of the enemy.

11 "And the waters covered their enemies :
there was not one of them left.

12 P Then believed they his words ; they
sang his praise.

13 i-f- They soon forgat his works, they
waited not for his counsel :

14 'But t lusted exceedingly in the wil-
derness, and tempted God in the desert.

15 'And he gave them their request; but
'sent leanness into their soul.

16 "They envied Moses also in the camp,
and Aaron the saint of the Lord.

17 ^The earth opened and swallowed up
Dathan, and covered the company of Abi-
ram.

18 yAnd a fire was kindled in their com-
pany; the flame burned up the wicked.

19 ^They made a calf in Horeb, and
worshipped the molten image.

and God's mercy.

' 20 Thus "they changed their glory into
the similitude of an ox that eateth grass.

21 They ^ forgat God their saviour, which
had done great things in Egypt ;

. 22 Wondrous works in "^the land of Ham,
and terrible things by the Red sea.

23 ^Therefore he said that he would de-
stroy them, had not Moses his chosen "stood
before him in the breach, to turn away his
wrath, lest he should destroy them.

24 Yea, they despised ^ t the pleasant land,
they 8 believed not his word :

'25 ''But murmured in their tents, and
hearkened not unto the voice of the Lord.

26 'Therefore he ■'lifted up his hand
against them, to overthrow them in the wil-
derness :

27 t'To overthrow their seed also among
the nations, and to scatter them in the lands.

28 ""They joined themselves also unto
Baal-peor, and ate the sacrifices of the dead.

29 Thus they provoked Mm to anger with
their inventions : and the plague brake in
upon them.

.30 "Then stood up Phinehas, and executed
judgment : and so the plague was stayed.

31 And that was counted unto him °for
righteousness unto all generations for ever-
more.

32 P They angered liim also at the waters
of strife, ^so that it went ill with Moses for
their sakes :

33 'Because they provoked his spirit, so
that he spake unadvisedly with his lips.

34 'They did not destroy the nations,
'concerning whom the Lord commanded
them:

35 "But were mingled among the heathen,
and learned their works.

36 And ^they served their idols y which
were a snare unto them.

37 Yea, ^they sacrificed their sons and
their daughters unto ''devils,

38 And shed innocent blood, even the
blood of their sons and of their daughters,
whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Ca-
naan : and Hhe land was polluted with blood.

39 Thus were they "defiled with their own
works, and ^went a whoring with their own
inventions.

40 Therefore "was the wrath of the Lord
kindled against his people, insomuch that he
abhorred ^ his own inheritance.

41 And she gave them into the hand of
the heathen; and they that hated them
ruled over them.

42 Their enemies also oppressed them,
and they were brought into subjection under
their hand.

God's providence over travellers, Sfc.

they provoked Mm with their counsel; and
were || brought low for their iniquity.

44 Nevertheless he regarded their afilic-
tion, when 'he heard their cry :

45 ''And he remembered for them his
covenant, and ' repented <" according to the
multitude of his mercies.

46 "* He made them also to be pitied of all
those that carried them captives.

47 "Save us, O Lord our God, and ga-
ther us from among the heathen, to give
thanks unto thy holy name, and to triumph
in thy praise.

48 P Blessed be the Lord God of Israel
from everlasting to everlasting : and let all
the people say. Amen, f Praise ye the Lord.

PSALM CVIL

1 The psalmist exhorteth the redeemed, in praising God,
to observe his manifold providence, 4 over travellers,
10 over captives, 17 over sick men, 23 over seamen,
33 and in divers varieties of life.

0''GIVE thanks unto the Lord, for ^he
is good: for h.is>TCievcy endureth for ever.

2 Let the redeemed of the Lord say so,
"whom he hath redeemed from the hand of
the enemy ;

3 And "i gathered them out of the lands,
from the east, and from the west, from the
north, and tfrom the south.

4 They "wandered in ""the wilderness in
a solitary way ; they found no city to dwell in.

5 Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted
in them.

6 sThen they cried unto the Lord in
their trouble, and he delivered them out of
their distresses.

7 And he led them forth by the ''right
way, that they might go to a city of habita-
tion.

8 ' Oh that men would praise the Lord
for his goodness, andybr his wonderful works
to the children of men !

9 For ''he satisfieth the longing soul, and
fiUeth the hungry soul with goodness.

10 Such as 'sit in darkness and in the
shadow of death, heing "^ bound in afiliction
and iron ;

11 Because they "rebelled against the
Avords of God, and contemned ° the counsel
of the Most High :

12 Therefore he brought down their heart
with labour ; they fell down, and there was
Pnone to help.

13 iThen they cried unto the Lord in
their trouble, and he saved them out of their
distresses.

14 '•He brought them out of darkness and
the shadow of death, and brake their bands

in sunder.

Go(Js providence in divers varieties of life.

15 » Oh that men would praise the Lord
for his goodness, and/or his wonderful works
to the children of men !

16 For he hath 'broken the gates of brass,
and cut the bars of iron in sunder.

17 Fools, " because of their transgression,
and because of their iniquities are afflicted.

18 ^ Their soul abhorreth all manner of
meat; and they y draw near unto the gates of
death.

19 ^Then they cry unto the Lord in their
trouble, and he saveth them out of their
distresses.

20 "He sent his word, and ''healed them,
and ''delivered them from their destructions.

21 ^Oh that men would praise the Lord-
for his goodness, andybr his wonderful works
to the children of men !

22 And ''let them sacrifice the sacrifices of
thanksgiving, and ''declare his works with
I" rejoicing.

23 They that go down to the sea in ships,
that do business in great waters ;

24 These see the works of the Lord, and
his wonders in the deep.

25 For he commandeth, and f^raiseth the
stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves
thereof.

26 They mount up to the heaven, they go
down again to the depths : ^ their soul is
melted because of trouble.

27 They reel to and fro, and stagger like
a drunken man, and t are at their wit's end.

28 'Then they cry unto the Lord in their
trouble, and he bringeth them out of their
distresses.

29 ■'He maketh the storm a calm, so that
the waves thereof are still.

30 Then are they glad because they be
quiet ; so he bringeth them unto their desired
haven.

31 ' Oh that men would praise the Lord
for his goodness, and/or his wonderful works
to the children of men !

32 Let them exalt him also "in the con-
gregation of the people, and praise him in
the assembly of the elders.

33 He " turneth rivers into a wilderness,
and the water-springs into dry ground ;

34 A "fruitful land into f barrenness, for
the wickedness of them that dwell therein.

35 pHe turneth the wilderness into a
standing water, and dry ground into water-
springs.

36 And there he maketh the hungry to
dwell, that they may prepare a city for habi-
tation ; , . 1

37 And sow the fields, and plant vmeyards,
which n'ay yield fruits of increase.
